French term or phrase:une Marseillaise pour la légende
Really don't know how to render this one. It's a heading in a chapter on F1 racing as part of the history of a major French auto maker. Talking about how their turbocharged model finally made a respectable showing. Here it is in context - ('les railleurs' refers to the British mockery of this maker's first model):
"1979 : Une Marseillaise pour la légende
[...] Les railleurs de juillet 1977 se taisent et, autant que sur la piste, il s’agit d’une victoire cruciale pour [X] : le pari du turbo en F1 est déjà gagné."
